    Pros

    Cons

    Where to begin given such an extensive list? Hmmm... 1. AZ leadership, global and US, lacks: Vision, Accountability, Self-Awareness, Sense of Purpose, Creativity, Authenticity, Humility, Passion, & Courage 2. AZ is nothing more than a reach & frequency company that can't get out of its own way regardless of area: Commercial, R&D, Distribution, HR, you name it it's broken here 3. AZ isn't interested in selling (if you're looking for a sales / account management / sales leadership position) so much as it is sales. If you're looking for a Commercial / Field Sales role of some sort don't worry about being qualified or over qualified as the first isn't something in which the company is interested and the second is a given regardless of employment background or tenure. 4. AZ would prefer not to hire or retain the employment of intelligent, self-motivated, business minded, self-aware Commercial representatives as it works against their model of hire people who can provide in person TV ads. 5. AZ lives and perpetuates a culture of corporate nepotism which would be less offensive if those benefiting from such a culture weren't such horribly incompetent choices 6. AZ lives and perpetuates a culture of bias. Be it gender on gender, gender against gender, competency bias, sexual orientation bias, you name it the bias culture is prominent and in the Commercial organization and not likely to change because of its culture of corporate nepotism 7. Career advancement opportunities are finite; being a sycophant does help though 8. Salary / bonuses fall grossly below industry average 9. In large part it was embarrassing and remains to be for those still at AZ, to admit to others in the same industry that AZ is where one works as it is widely viewed as one of the most incompetent organizations filled, top to bottom, with people who just aren't very bright or their intellect has been put to work in an area all wrong for employee & employer 10. Clinical and competitive training is non-existent as is market landscape awareness

Very much so 9-5pm Strong patient focus - cementard as a primary care company Based pay is good for someone new to Pharma bu

    Cons

    Limited progression as based on tenure and not skill set Difficult to transition between therapeutic areas Constant senior management change, lolcal managment change and commercial reps leaving. Commissions and pay increases are poor. Don’t expect to early too much.
